Give From The Heart Event this Thursday

Posted: Updated:

You can join the Heartland House for a big fundraising event to help families in need of a place to call home. All money raised will go to help families of the heartland house. The Give From The Heart event will include dinner and a dessert auction. The event is being held Thursday February 21st at the Holiday Inn City Centre in Downtown Sioux Falls. Social hour will start at 5:30 and the Dinner and program will begin at 6:30.

Heartland House is a transitional housing program for homeless families with children. Organizers say the goal of Heartland House is to help homeless families, not only find a place to call home, but eventually to see them succeed and become self-sufficient. Organizers say in order to be eligible, the family must be homeless and must commit to the fulfillment of a family self-sufficiency plan, which details the family's goals for itself.

Heartland House consists of three apartment buildings, located in Sioux Falls, and Family Case Managers, who provide intensive case management to the participating families. The families pay rent, based on their income. Heartland House is a program of Inter-Lakes Community Action Partnership and is home to 43 families with children, ranging from 0 to17 years of age that are homeless.

Tickets are still available for the Give From The Heart Event. You can call (605) 334-2808 ext. 354 or email events@interlakescap.com.
